An Arthur book?! I know what you must be thinking... why a children's book?

Well, one of my best friends and I went to the library and fangirled over the Arthur television show, filled with nostalgia - so we decided to read some of the books before closing. I picked up this one because I thought, whoah when did Ratburn move in!?

It was an extremely amusing tale of how Arthur learns that his teacher isn't all that bad, and is human like everyone else - I feel like teachers would enjoy this book be

Arthur assumed that Mr. Ratburn was mean because he was his teacher. However, when Mr. Ratburn stays the night at Arthur's house while his roof is being fixed, Arthur learns that Mr. Ratburn is just like everyone else. This is a good book to use to teach students about not judging others until you get to know them.

This book is a good book to teach about peer pressure and judging others. Arthur gets teased for having his teacher stay at his house-by the end he realizes his teacher is a person who enjoys basic things like him.

One of the sillier books in the Arthur series. Mr. Ratburn's character is developed in this book, when he comes to live with the Read family after his roof collapses. There is also a plot line about how to deal with being called a teachers pet.

This was a fun Arthur book. The children realize that teachers don't live at school and they can be 'human' too. BUT Arthur makes the best on a test and the class start calling him teacher's pet when Mr. Ratburn comes to stay at his house when his house is being fixed.

The storyline here is completely implausible (wouldn't Mr. Ratburn stay with a colleague or at a hotel before staying with a student's family?). But I can't help myself, I love Marc Brown's illustrations, and his storylines always strike a chord with kids.

Mr. Ratburn is moving in with Arthur! How terrible! Living with your teacher!? Who knew teachers had lives outside of school. Could Mr. Ratburn actually be a normal animal. Maybe him moving in won't be so bad at all. Arthur is considerin gthese things while taking slack from his friends.

I felt sorry for Arthur in this story as he was teased about being the "teacher's pet."

I brought this book because I loved reading Arthur books when I was little. I would always pick a different Arthur book to read or for my mom to read me.

A great book to teach students that teachers don't live at school. It could also be used to illustrate how hurtful it is when we tease our friends.
